this is a time for change and we do think president obama is going to lead us in the right direction. >> steve, the nature of this debate, i think, needs to be crystallized and clarified. too many people on each sides take positions and put words in the mouth of their opponents. you the reality is this, nobody is suggesting a ban on all guns in america. the second amendment is absolutely part of american culture and people believe in it. however, there are limitations. the amendment talks about a well-regulated ed militia. people are calling out for taking some of these weapons away from people with potential mental issues. to me, the question for you is this, the last three mass shootings in the last four months in america, aurora, oregon in the shopping mall and now here in newtown have involved young people using the same weapon, ar-15 semi-automatic rifle with high-capacity magazines. in aurora, over 100 in his magazine, which he could fire off, and here we saw up to 30, but a lot of magazines. here's the question, why do you feel that americans should have those if your belief is they ju
ammunition clips. back with me now r, let's start with you steve, the president made it clear, he wants to see a ban on assault weapons. what is your reaction? >> my reaction first off on behalf of the michigan gun coalition, i want to express sympathy to the victims of this tragedy. we passed a common sense change to create more safety. >> you ordered more guns didn't you? >> more licenses to go into more places. that is a little bit different. >> why do you not want to see the ban? given that they are military grade weapons they cause massive devastation. they can fire four to six bullets a second. they can fire 100 bullets in a minute. this shooter took enough bullets to wipe out the entire school and could have done. why do you want these on the streets of america? >> they are not going to go away anytime soon. there is no law that you can pass that would have stopped the bullet that would have been lodged in my hip. >> what do you say to the families in sandy hook? sorry. this is the worst by far for any of the countries in the world. yet your answer is more guns. >> i have had con
department public information officer, steve huffman. mr. huffman, thank you for joining us. one of the churches, trinity episcopal suffered a lot of damage. part of the roof is gone, front part of the parish is gone. and they went through a $1 million renovation. thank goodness it didn't happen when the church was packed. as daylight breaks what is the biggest challenge in terms of cleanup? >> we had public works crews working throughout the night and alabama power crews working to restore power in those affected areas. these guys -- i mean, unfortunately, this was not anything new to us. now, tornadoes are, but we're used to hurricanes, so we deal with power outages and things like that in emergencies such as this. our guys are well trained to respond to the types of incidents? >> how rare is it to have these tornadoes at this time of the year and nobody hurt, so you must have had pretty good warnings out there? >> we have been told a couple of days ahead of time to expect some severe weather to include tornadoes, and i think everybody was prepared for that. of course, we were
capacity ammunition clips. back with me now, let's start with you steve, the president made it clear, he wants to see a ban on assault weapons. of the kind that was there before, perhaps with tinkering to the loopholes. he wanted to see an end to the high capacity clips and better background checks. what is your reaction? >> my reaction is, first off, on behalf of the entire michigan coalition for responsible gun ownership, first of all, i want to express sympathy to those who have lost loved ones. we have the goal of increasing safety and the reason i ended up in this decision is because we in your legislature what we thought was a common sense change to the create more safety. >> you wanted more guns? >> not more guns, but to allow those of us with licenses to go into more places. that's a little bit different. >> why do you not want to see assault rifles like the ar 15 banned, given they are devastating, they are military-grade weapons in many senses. they cause massive devastation. they can fire four to six bullets a second if primed properly. they can fire a hundred bullets in a min
